one of the best pale ales i’ve ever had, even better now that i can get it on tap. rusted amber with a big ole santa’s beard on top. hops abound but balance well. notes of caramel and pomelo. love the brwery, love the beer.

Pours an amber color with a rich off-white head. Citrus aroma is present but not overpowering. Flavor is initially sweet caramel malt quickly balanced by the grapefruit and citrus hops. Mouthfeel is good throughout. Finish is like a crisp apple. Reminds me of a Pseudo Sue or a slightly less aggressive Hopslam. Very well balanced and drinkable.

Medium carbonation with a after taste of hops. Smooth brew with a nice grain taste.

I’m becoming a big fan of Three floyds. great hop flavor and even better hop aroma. Thankfully this is available in PA. Very much worth a try for any one into hoppy beers.

Superhopped pale ale that pours dark orange with a creamy thick head. Aroma of grassy hops and citrus. Flavor is a balance of bitter and floral hops with enough malt to keep it pleasant. still has a lot of punch on the hop end, though. A little light when compared to the appearance, but very refreshing as a result. Great effort.

APA not this is an IPA...if I were to rate this on style...booo. But it is such a phenomena grass white pepper aroma kills it. Flavor is crisp and dry with a hop presence that lingers throughout. My fav

Bottle from Cutter’s Way. Pours a nice amber color with a tan colored head. Aroma is citrus, pine, malt and slight sweetness. Taste is a citrus with bitterness up front with a sweet ending. A very good pale ale.

Pint on draft. Good head on it, with a citrus heavy aroma. Tastes amazing, really citrus and hoppy with a light, clean finish.

very citrusy, in the aroma, the flavor and the aftertaste. not very hoppy, yet tasty, although i have to say that i found the citrus a little overpowering and could have dealt with less of that.

As soon as I opened the bottle, my nose was overwhelmed with the aroma of hops. As I began to drink it, sure enough, my mouth was filled with the wonderful flavor of hops. Boiling, aroma, and finishing hops are very apparent in this brew. I really enjoyed it. As for any other flavors, there was a little bit of citrus in it. The color was an orange with an off-white head. I really enjoyed this one.
